Richard Kenigsman

Born 1945 in Brussels, Belgium.

University level studies and artistic training at the Academy of Uccle, Brussels.
Simultaneous pursuit of a career in the pharmaceutical industry and the arts.

Dedicated exclusively to painting since 1997.

Works exhibited since 1993.
As a Jewish pop artist revisits and interprets Jewish and non-Jewish posters, photos,  proverbs or songs and tries to transform them into paintings, drawings, or mobile puppets with his own sensitivity and humour. 


“He is successful because he uses broad humour, bad taste, pop and commercial culture as his potent tools to examine and contemplate our Yiddishkeit and modern Jewish world. Each notion he makes into a poster is one we hold dear and think we are so sure about. He makes us laugh and then gets us to look a little closer. Perhaps that’s why I can't help myself. Go take a closer look.”

The Jewish Press Magazine by Richard McBee.

That's The Law; Yeshiva University Museum, New York, 2001.

Since 2007 he is collaborating to a chronicle “ L’Homme du Roi “, published in the Jewish Magazine Contact J ( Belgium).
